New models of care

On 22 February 2015 around 200 health and social care professionals from across the borough came together for the first Shaping Sefton event called 'New Models of Care'. The event saw a wide range of professionals - from frontline staff to senior leaders – begin to shape and consider how they might deliver their collective vision for better, more integrated care in Sefton.

Shaping Sefton is being supported by the King’s Fund, the independent think tank working to improve health and health care in England, and this first event was opened by its chief executive, Prof Chris Ham. He set out the case for change in Sefton across the whole health and social care system in order to address the demands of an ageing population and increasing numbers of people with multiple and complex long term conditions.

Research by the King’s Fund evidences the benefits - in particular to the experience of patients, their families and carers – of organisations and services working together, which makes a compelling case for care to be co-ordinated around the needs of people and populations.

The event was opened by the chair of Sefton Health and Wellbeing Board, Cllr Ian Moncur and attendees were invited to take part in workshop sessions, focused around four main presentations that you can see below.
